Temple Grandin on Monday's Access Utah


Temple Grandin didn’t talk until she was three and a half years old, communicating her frustration instead by screaming, peeping, and humming. In 1950, she was diagnosed with autism and her parents were told she should be institutionalized. Instead, she went on to become professor of animal science at Colorado State University and a world leader in designing humane facilities for livestock. She is a prominent author and activist in the autism field, and her life is the subject of a 2010 HBO movie.

Dr. Temple Grandin is coming to Logan for a Thursday event at USU, talking about her recent book "The Autistic Brain: Helping Different Kinds of Minds Succeed." She joins Tom Williams for the hour on Monday’s Access Utah.
